The DLD Competencies for Teachers of Students with Learning Disabilities.
Graves, Anne; And Others
This list of competencies was designed to guide the preparation of teachers of students with learning disabilities. It is based upon a conceptual model known as "the cube" which is divided into 10 broad areas: (1) nature and needs of students with learning disabilities; (2) academic support areas: study skills, consumer skills, and career/vocational skills; (3) curriculum for support areas and modification of school core curriculum; (4) assessment methods, use, and interpretation; (5) classroom assessment, management, and motivation; (6) collaboration and consultation skills; (7) specialized instructional strategies, technologies, and materials; (8) historical and legal aspects; (9) nontraditional practices and procedures; and (10) clinical and field experiences. These 10 areas provide the structure for a list of 209 specific competencies, to be applied within and across the 10 competency areas in different ways, depending upon the specific circumstances of age, severity level, and type of service delivery. (Contains approximately 70 references.) (JDD)
